According to information relayed from L’Equipe, despite the humiliating performance of the Indomitable Lions at the World Cup, and catastrophic tenure of office of Paul Le Guen since 29th July 2009, the president of FECAFOOT, Iya Mohammed has decided to solicit him to prolong his contract as coach of the National team to 2014. This information brings shock waves across Cameroon. It is surprising that Le Guen has been resurfaced regardless of the stale atmosphere which characterizes the national team with the egocentric attitude of some players, and the incompetence attributed to him. Lothar Matthaus who was at the top of the list for this job has been discarded in reference of the Frenchman.
Why not get a local coach?
Some Cameroonians suggest that rather than spending fabulous sums of money to pay foreign coaches who do not measure up to expectation, FECAFOOT should go for a local coach. Some names have been cited here like Patrick Mboma, Francis Oman Biyik and Francis Towa.
